Hello Baby

Hello crafty friends, Nicole here.

Besides all the christmas cards, I needed a baby card for a family that just got their third child.

I wanted to create a baby card for a boy but not with the typical baby-boy-blue. Because little Mael was born in December, I thought stars would be nice. And I wanted to personalize the card with the unique alphabet. To add some cuteness, I colored this super adorable snail, one of my favorite critters by Create A Smile.

  1. create the background by using a stencil and some Distress Oxide Inks and an ink blending tool. I used "fossilized amber" and "spiced marmelade". Die cut the panel with the stitched frame die.
  2. Create the gras by tearing some green paper and die cut it with the same stitched frame die to make it match your panel. Glue it to your panel.
  3. stamp, color and fussy cut the snail. I used colored pencils.
  4. stamp the letters and fussy cut them.
  5. stamp the "welcome" and the stars 
  6. adhere the snail and the letters with some foam tape
  7. add "pale gold" Nuvo Crystal Drops to the panel and some Glossy Accents on the heart
  8. to make your snail extra cute and fun, add a googly eye ;-)

Mixing looks like the clean geometric alphabet and the cute and playful snail can create a completely new look. 

Personalizing a baby card by adding the new borns name is always a good idea. :-) It makes your handmade creation even more thoughtful and unique.
